Freelancer is a space trading and combat simulation video game developed by Digital Anvil and published by Microsoft Game Studios.
In the game, players take on the roles of spacecraft pilots. These characters fly single-seater ships, exploring the planets and space stations. They also engage in dogfights with other pilots to protect traders or engage in piracy themselves. Other player activities include bounty-hunting and commodity trading. The single-player mode puts the player in the role of Edison Trent, who goes through a series of missions to save the Sirius sector from a mysterious alien force.
